Foreign Movie Night: The Demining Camp (Acampamento de Desminagem)

Film is a great means of observing other cultures around the world and this next film focuses on Mozambique. Join us for another movie night! The Demining Camp (Acampamento de Desminagem) (2005, 60 min), by Licinio Azevedo – tells the true story of a heroic group of men given the task of rebuilding a post-war Mozambique by clearing mines. Some fought on opposite sides in the war which ravaged Mozambique. Others were civilians, and for them, the demining work is an alternative to unemployment or a life of crime. Living all together in tents, they stay for long periods far from their families. Every day they risk their lives together. They are indeed a very special group of men. Best documentary-International WECC – Milan 2nd prize “Windows on the World” – Milan Best documentary – Cinemambiente – Torino After the screening, we will be led in our discussion by Harriet McGuire, a former Public Affairs Officer with the U.S. Embassy in Maputo, Mozambique. Suggested Donation: $10 to support BloomBars. Free Popcorn and refreshments provided.
